About Me

I own and operate a cleaning service business, and I help my husband with his home improvement business. Both keep me pretty busy in the summer months, but work is pretty much non-existent in the off season since I live in cold snowy climate. In my free time I enjoy photography, road trips, and creating art. I love to shop at second hand stores, antique shops, and garage sales! I have a fascination with retro advertising and signs, and have started an instagram page dedicated to all of the old signs I photograph while on my road trips.
